Tirpitz Battery - Blåvand - Varde - German World War II bunker - Atlantic Wall - European Tourist Guide - euro-t-guide.com
During World War II the Germans had some strong fortifications in the Blåvand and Esbjerg area. One of these point should have been the Tirpitz Battery, but this battery was never finished. If it had been finished, it would have had some of the strongest guns on the Atlantic Wall.
